In the ninth episode of the show's first season, there's a shot of a Megazord with a random, unmentioned and unexplained Japanese kid just kinda standing there next to him. In subsequent shots, he's gone. Was this some kid who randomly wandered onto the set and into a shot? Did we hallucinate that?
Turns out -- as several of our Power Rangers-savvy Facebook fans pointed out -- the kid was actually part of the plot in the Japanese show Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger, which Power Rangers re-used some of the Megazord battle footage from. So in this particular shot, the recycled footage happened to include this kid but the U.S. show never explained it, then just moved on.
That's right, the first Yellow Ranger was actually played by a Latina actress, Audri Dubois, and she starred on the first episode. After filming the pilot, she asked for more money and was given the boot according to a TMZ interview with Walter Jones. Then we got Trini, who will always and forever be the only Yellow Ranger, ever.
